Sledgehammer have announced a collection of Double XP opportunities in Call of Duty: WWII, plus the addition of two permanent game modes.

First released in November of 2017, WWII generated a massive amount of hype around the gaming community for its storied return to ‘boots on the ground’ combat.

The developer reported over $1 billion in sales in just mere months since launch, with the game shooting to the top of the charts for the entire year even after a Q4 release.

New content is periodically added to the game over time by Sledgehammer in order to keep the game ‘fresh,’ and keep their player-base guessing as to what will come next.

Although in-game items such as weapons, outfits, and other additions are constantly introduced, the studio will also implement various ‘Midweek Mobilize’ and ‘Weekend Warfare’ playlists to highlight different game modes.

On Wednesday, May 16th, players will have a total of four different opportunities to earn Double XP, with three coming via multiplayer, and one from Nazi Zombies.

The full breakdown of the playlists can be viewed below, which includes the permanent addition of Ground War, and Ground War: WAR.

Hey r/WWII,

Ahead of the BO4 reveal Thursday and because we won’t have our typical SHG Weekly Community Update posted Friday, we wanted to let you know about the playlist updates we’ll be pushing out this week so you don’t miss out!

See below:

We’ve got new Daily Orders for this week for rifles, LMGs, SMGs, sniper rifles, shotguns, and pistols.

Note: There was a UI issue for this morning’s Daily Order, so we pulled it down and plan to bring it back again soon. That said, if you already picked it up, the Order will still track properly. The requirement is: “Get 15 Multikills with a Pistol.” Apologies for the inconvenience!

Midweek Mobilize and Weekend Warfare (live from 10AM PDT on Wednesday, May 16 until 10AM PDT on Thursday, May 17)

  • 2XP on Nazi Zombies – Live from 10AM PDT on Wednesday, May 16 until 10AM PDT on Thursday, May 17
  • 2XP on One Shot (One Shot is a sniper playlist that will be playable for TDM and Dom modes) – Live from 10AM PDT on Wednesday, May 16 until 10AM PDT on Thursday, May 17
  • 2XP Ground War (Standard and HC) – 2XP live from 10AM PDT on Wednesday, May 16 until 10AM PDT on Monday, May 21, but Ground War is here to stay!
  • 2XP Ground War: WAR – 2XP live from 10AM PDT on Wednesday, May 16 until 10AM PDT on Monday, May 21, but Ground War: WAR is here to stay!

Thanks, everyone!

Warzone dev reveals fix for missing Trick or Treat rewards bug

One of Warzone’s lead developers has responded to the frustrating Trick or Treat rewards bug during the Haunting of Verdansk event, with players not getting the Pumpkin Punisher Grau blueprint after completing all the challenges.

The Haunting of Verdansk is the special Halloween event in Warzone, with lots of new content for players to sink their teeth into.

This includes new Operator packs, including skins from horror films Saw and Texas Chainsaw Massacre, as well as the new Zombie Royale game mode and, of course, the Trick or Treat Rewards.

By searching chests in 16 different locations, players can earn all manner of items from calling cards and emblems to the awesome Cleaver melee blueprint. As a result of unlocking all 16, you’re supposed to get the Grau blueprint weapon, Pumpkin Punisher — but for some people, this isn’t happening.

The Pumpkin Punisher gives a spooky spin on a previous Warzone favorite weapon, the Grau 5.56.

A number of players have reported that even after completing all 16 Trick or Treat challenges and unlocking all the rewards, the Pumpkin Punisher remains locked and isn’t added to their Armory.

One player reported the issue to Joe Cecot, the Co-Design Director of Multiplayer at developer Infinity Ward, and he suggested that the likely issue is the UI thinks players have everything, but they’re actually missing one of the rewards.

To fix this, Cecot offered a workaround, though it might not be particularly fun: he advises players to hit all the locations again and the gun will likely be unlocked, to make sure the game properly registers the completion of every single challenge. He also says that it’s “most likely the location that is still not registered will give candy out of the box.”

Of course, this will be slightly frustrating for players who have not yet unlocked the Pumpkin Punisher, despite having completed all of the relevant tasks.

Cecot did add that in the long run, they’ll “most likely fix people in this state,” though it’s unclear when that could happen, or even if at all.
